#Good news! The IRS has extended the tax deadline to April 18th! As long as you submit your federal return by midnight on 4/18/2018, you won't be considered a late filer for your federal return. Direct debit tax payments that are submitted with your federal return (or on the IRS website) by 4/18 are also considered timely filed ×

Is there a limit to the amount of charitable contributions I can deduct in a year?

Generally, the total amount of cash contributions you can deduct is limited to 50% of your adjusted gross income (AGI) shown on line 38 of Form 1040. If you’re a high-income earner, your contributions and other itemized deductions may be limited if your AGI exceeds a certain dollar amount. This is in addition to the 50% limit for contributions.

In certain situations, your deduction may be limited to 30% or 20%. Credit Karma Tax doesn’t support these limitations.
